FOND DU LAC –Hansen’s BP in Fond du Lac sold a $1 million winning ticket for Saturday’s Powerball drawing. The ticket matched all five numbers 25-37-39-61-62 but not the Powerball number.

“Maybe we’re the new Miracle Mile,” said store owner Julie Hansen, referring to the nearby strip of businesses between 7th and 21st Street in Fond du Lac with the title Miracle Mile. “This may be our first Powerball winner but we’re definitely not strangers to selling winning tickets.”
